For me, it's a beach bar
Or on a boat underneath the stars
Or with my band up on a stage
For awhile, everything's okay

For some, it's a fast car
Moonshine in a mason jar
But everybody has their way
Somehow to escape

Reality
Yeah, sometimes, life ain't all it is cracked up to be
So, let's take a chance, and live this fantasy
'Cause everbody needs to break free
From reality

Oh, yeah

Guess somedays, it's a bitch; it's a bummer
We need a rock 'n' roll show in the summer
We'll let the music take us away
Take our minds to a better place

Where we feel that sense of freedom
Leave our worries behind us; we don't need 'em
All we need is a sunny day, and an ol' tailgate
And we'll escape

Reality
Yeah, sometimes, life ain't all it is cracked up to be
So, let's take a chance, and live this fantasy
'Cause everbody needs to break free
From reality

Everybody, raise your hands and voice tonight
Set your soul free; let's take a carpet ride
We'll leave it all behind

Oh, yeah

Reality
Yeah, sometimes, life ain't all it is cracked up to be
So, let's take a chance, and live this fantasy
'Cause everbody needs to break free
From reality
Yeah, oh, yeah

C'mon, everybody, break free
C'mon everybody, break free
